NYS Licensed Esthetician

My desire to learn about skin care followed my attempts to find the perfect skin. Through my education, mentors, and my own personal skin transformation. I now know skin care can be a challenge.

Skin care can also be a relaxing, calming, and refreshing experience.
I utilize the Jurlique product line in my facial and offer this wonderful, all natural product line for retail.

Robin Catania Weber

Reiki Master

Robin, a Certified Usui Reiki Master, has been a Reiki practitioner since 2009 and continues to attend conferences, workshops, and classes on anatomy, physiology, energy healing and related topics. Robin feels blessed to share Reiki as well as her love for yoga with others whenever she can.

Reiki (Ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing art that helps promote well-being on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki is a universal life force energy that is transmitted through the healer’s hands to the client through very light touch. Reiki is safe for everyone and is known worldwide. Reiki is relaxing and it compliments other healing modalities as well.

Kathryn Smith

NYS Licensed Massage Therapist

I believe that massage is a great gift and I enjoy helping people relax while becoming more aware of their bodies and teaching self-maintenance skills. I think the human body is amazing and I am driven to find natural ways to help the body heal itself.

I specialize in sports, deep tissue, pregnancy, visceral (belly) massage and TMJ (jaw) specific massage. I would classify the type of massage I do as therapeutic, because I believe a great therapist is able to vary the pressure and utilize a variety of skills to meet the expectations of any client.

I graduated in 2004 with my Bachelors in Sports Medicine, and moved to California. I went to massage school in Santa Barbara and got licensed in 2006. Over the last 10 years I have been working in California. Upon returning home to New York I finished the state required hours at Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage in Albany. In the duration of my career I have worked in spas and homes, on professional athletes and movie stars, as well as many average people.

My Sports Medicine background has given me a great understanding of how the body works and I believe that helps me to address and assist the needs of a client.

From gentle to firm pressure and the in-between, I can do it all.

I am excited for the new place to build my business and more people to help.

Gloria Ragonetti

Health and Wellness Advisor

As a Health Coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and with a Master’s Degree in Family Counseling and School Guidance from the State University of New York at Albany, my goal is to empower those who want to make positive changes in their lives; to teach and encourage them how to achieve a healthy lifestyle with optimal wellness.

As someone who has struggled in the past to achieve a healthy lifestyle, I understand and have experienced frustration and disappointment. But my experiences, my dedication and my training have helped me shape a more fulfilled, healthy and balanced life.

As a Health and Wellness Advisor, it is my belief that we will achieve success by working together to evaluate your lifestyle and set clear, attainable goals, using problem solving techniques to achieve the positive outcome that is desired.

Ultimately, only you, the client can make the changes to obtain a healthy life. However, as we work together, I will be with you to advise, guide, support and encourage so that you can become the best you intend to be.

Dawn W. Judkins

Belly Casting

Dawn Judkins became a Reiki Master in 2014 under the tutelage of William Lee Rand and has been a Reiki practitioner since 1999. Together with Dana Russell, the wellness center On the Right Path was created. They worked in sync to develop a place of healing, balance and rejuvenation. After adding Belly Casting to her repertoire, Dawn’s underlining need to tap into her artistic abilities surfaced. As a result, she stepped away from the day to day working of On the Right Path to pursue her degree in the Arts.

Dawn graduated in the Spring of 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts with a Concentration in Oil Painting. Armed with a paint brush and palette, she eager to create lasting keepsakes of your pregnancy. You can visit Dawn’s website dwjudkinsgallery.com for ideas and pricing.
